4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Small sample from Plan/B , Copenhagen who had a single keg of this. Though the sample was very little I remember the taste and feel quite well. Extremely muddy orange with a small white head. Lots of wood with sour and fresh raspberries. Some caramel, fruit and a good deal of tartness and oak. Smooth and medium palate. Amazingly fresh and top notch considering this is probably 20 years old.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2009 89’ Hazy orange with a medium off white head. Draft. Sour raspberries hits the nose along with wood, hay and candy drops. Flavour was quite tart with raspberries, lemons, barnyard, wood and leather. Finished deliciously tart. Very fresh raspberries despite the age. Absolutely amazing!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle into tulip. 1989 vintage. Crazy-ass lambic tasting in our hotel room, GABF 2007. Thanks to cquiroga for bringing this one. Dusting of white on top of a glowing ruby orange in the glass. Smell is warm and jammy, with raspberries. On the first sip, I have pictured in my mind raspberries being eaten in slow-mo and sepia tone: it’s not bright and full, mellowed, but very nicely realized. This is balanced by earthy things: twigs, dust, and dirt, all fibrous and dark under the medium and somewhat watery body. Finish lingers a small bit, but there’s not much there. Definitely oxidized a bit on the end, but I don’t mind it much.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 375mL Bottle, 1989 Vintage. Generously shared by cquiroga. Slightly hazy, even color of golden, ruddy caramels with a thin layer of soapy, off-white head. Big, sweet and juicy raspberry nose that’s amazingly bright for the age. A bit jammy and thick, with an interesting anise spice complexity. Malty nose of vanilla and caramel add richness to the incredibly smooth, supple fruit nose. The aroma actually reminds me a lot of KRE. Medium bodied, lightly carbonated mouthfeel. Sweet raspberry flavors up front on the palate, by some caramel and vanilla malt richness. A mild acidity and gentle vinous tartness is present, but restrained compared to the fruit qualities. Some herbal raspberry seeds linger in the finish, along with more of the vanilla, malty sweetness. Would like a bit more acidity, but the raspberry qualities are delicious and amazingly fruity for the age. Thanks for the rare treat, Chris!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
1989 bottle at Heeren van Liedekercke. Poured an almost clear coppery-tinted amber with a lovely cap of pinkish-beige head. The aroma found a beautiful bouquet of rich raspberries along with some dark underlying wheat.. focused on the fruit and was rather complex. Flavor was of rich, rather tart raspberries with the wheat from the nose.. the fruit evolved to become more liquory, while retaining some tart, fresh edge.. long, tart finish carried the raspberries off into the distance. Nice level of tartness on the palate with just a few sweet notes from the fruit... little light across the middle and there was some graininess at the finish. Lovely beer.
